Follow the winding route of the Danube and discover the lively history of one of Europe's most important rivers. This outstanding cycling opportunity will take you past Austrian castles, Benedictine monasteries and ancestral vineyards en route to the beautiful city of Vienna. The dedicated cycle path takes you across the fertile plains of the Wachau Valley, where vineyards climb the slopes to imposing medieval monasteries perched atop hills between Melk and Krems. Wind past castle ruins and apricot orchards before reaching the capital of Austria, where you can take in a performance of the "Blue Danube" waltz, the melody that evokes Vienna the world over.
